Are you a grown-ass woman? More importantly, are you a strong athletic grown-ass woman? We created this crop top for all of the Grown Ass Women in the world who want to be strong, athletic and make a statement.

Strong Athletic Grown-Ass Woman

In 2013 Nadia Kean, owner of Strong Athletic, started her apparel company with her token shirt "Strong Athletic Woman" because she wanted to be a walking billboard to teach the world that it was inappropriate to call her a "girl". She wanted to help to make the word "woman" an everyday descriptive word used to describe adult females. The shirt was in essence a protest to adult women being infantilized and called "girls", while their counterparts were referred to as "men" or "guys". 

That was Then, This is Now

In 2018, it is becoming more and more clear that the world does not respect women as a gender, as a voting group, as a movement. Women are still told to stand down, wait for their turn, speak when spoken to and that their safety is unimportant. Women are told that their most horrifying experiences never happened or that they happened because it was their fault. Women are paid less, expected to raise their country's next generation, yet we still remain the "second sex".

Women in Sports

In athletics it is no different. Girls are treated differently on the field and in sports than boys. Few girls play sports beyond high school. Even fewer play sports after college. Most elite female athletes will never see the pay in their lifetime that a minimally skilled male athlete will make in a season. The justification is that women's sports are unexciting, less aggressive and they do not deserve the coverage of men's sports. 

Naturally, I'm Over It, I Bet You are Too. 

Many women feel that they need to obtain permission. They feel this way in their jobs and they feel this way in their hobbies. In roller derby, some skaters feel that they need permission to play the sport. For what ever reason, they have been made to feel that they are unequal to their teammates, that they don't belong, that they should hang up their skates. At Strong Athletic we believe that this is a travesty and we just want to say this: You are a grown-ass woman (or human) and you do not need permission. 

 

About the Tank

This is a crop-top racerback tank top. What that means is that it cuts shorter on the stomach than a traditional length. Depending on the length of your torso, it will either come down below your bellybutton or it will show more of your stomach. The sizing is meant to mirror typical "female" sizing. The design is meant to resemble a tank that you have cut yourself from a t-shirt, with the armholes looking as if they were cutout. This tank runs a bit larger than normal Bella and Canvas tanks. 

The fabric is 52% combed and ring spun cotton and 48# polyester

    This top is rad. The fit is super comfy. The graphic makes me so feel so empowered and bad-ass.

    Strong Athletic Grown-Ass Woman crop top

    Posted by Suzanne Patton aka Wine-O-Mite on Dec 18th 2019

    I absolutely love this crop. I like that although it's a crop, it still comes to the top of my shorts or leggings. I also love the cut as it shows off my back and shoulders. Besides the fact that it's a crop top, I bought it as a reminder to myself that I AM a strong athletic woman. As a 52 year old woman in a sport of mostly younger skaters, I tend to get in my head about the fact that I'm so much older. I don't feel old, I feel strong. I don't look old, I look pretty damn good. So I don't know why I'm all up in my head. When I see myself in this shirt when I'm skating or working out, I say to myself, "you ARE a strong athletic grown ass woman! Keep kicking ass!"

    Love this shirt!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 18th 2019

    I love this shirt! It was my first Strong Athletic shirt I bought but definitely not the last. It’s long enough that I can wear it with not super high waist pants and still feel comfortable doing any workout.
